We have been doing a great deal of reading in our class this week. This includes reading quietly to ourselves, reading with a buddy, reading in small groups or one on one, and listening to reading on cd’s. We finished up our chapter book today titled Princess Posey and the First Grade Parade. We listened to two versions of The Three Little Pigs. Today we read I’m a Manatee and listened to a cd version that sang the story. Tomorrow we will be reading Slow Down for Manatees.
We have also been listening to some fun sing-a-longs. Today’s was a very catchy tune called “counting by ones song.” You can hear it here: http://www.schooltube.com/search/?term=counting+by+ones We also sang “Ten in a bed” from YouTube.
